Seams

Jeremy Keith:

If that’s the case, then it really doesn’t matter what we think about Chrome removing visible URLs. What appears to be a design decision about the user interface is in fact a manifestation of a much deeper vision. It’s a vision of a future where people can have everything their heart desires without having to expend needless thought. It’s a bright future filled with seamless experiences.

I love this post. It’s not only about why Google Chrome might have removed the URL from the browser UI but also more in general what it might mean if the “seamlessness” is overdone. Spoiler: You might have already seen it.
